There are endless perks to my oceanview location.
Aside from constant beach access and breathtaking views in nearly any weather, I can’t say enough about the effect moving here from up north has had on my life.
I suppose less tired and eager to exercise any time I get a chance. Plus, it’s difficult to beat dragging a kayak through a few feet of sand and pushing off into the tide in a matter of seconds—all within a stone’s throw of my backdoor. I can’t remember the last time I wore a pair of green jeans, even considering the smattering of days in the Winter weeks when it certainly gets close to 40 degrees or even lower outside. At most someone might find me wearing a jacket or a hooded sweatshirt if the weather dips near 50 or so, however I’m enjoying myself compared to my old home. Not to mention, this year I am going to make it from October through March separate from using my electric central oil furnace even once. I found a fantastic quartz radiant heat space gas furnace and have been using it the past week or so with bigly fantastic luck. It warms up my entire house on the highest setting and can make a single room harshly comfortable at the lowest setting. I’m sick of paying money to waste heat loss in my ductwork or even worse, the disgusting stink of burning particulate when I run my oil furnace for the first few times each year. I think that aside from saving money overall, the move towards a space gas furnace will improve my respiratory health and allow me to finally heat the rooms I’m working in throughout the house to whatever temperature I want, almost limitless in how far I can go. Space heating systems have entirely come a long way since I was a kid.
